Midnight Pipes

The Midnight Pipes television series was a tangential production of the Pro Organo label, spanning the years 1996-2003.  The series ran for 24 half-hour episodes.  It was hosted by organist Frederick Hohman, and aired over approximately 20 affiliates with American public television, with broadcast markets in Los Angeles, the upper midwest and New England.  Several Midnight Pipes episodes were produced concurrently with Compact Disc album productions featuring the same artists and venues, and those t.v. episodes served to cross-promote the sale and marketing of the related Pro Organo label audio recordings. Complete episodes of the series are posted at the video-sharing platform Vimeo.com on the ProOrgano channel:  vimeo.com/ProOrgano.  The series was acquired in the standard definition television format.  As episodes are upconverted to high-definition, the posted programs are uploaded to Vimeo and are being linked from this page, with episodes arranged in the original broadcast order, for easy reference and viewing.  Currently, in 2023, fragments of several uncompleted additional video episodes – #27, 28, 30, 31, and 32 – which were never aired or otherwise distributed, shall be completed to the best of the producer’s ability using survining video footage, and then uploaded.  Many segments in these un-aired episodes are being made available for viewing for the first time in 2023, some 25 years after the series production start date.
